The hardest part of losing weight for me was retooling my snacks. Previously, when the midafternoon hunger pangs hit, all bets were off; I would typically hit the vending machine or wander to the convenience store looking for a sweet treat or savory snack to give me that much-needed pick-me-up. But lately, instead of reaching for a carb-heavy bag of pretzels or a sugary cookie, which would just spike my blood sugar and leave me even hungrier an hour later, I turned to these low-carb protein bars.
Since I have PCOS, I aim to follow a low-carb diet to keep my insulin levels in check. Although every body is different and some people respond better to eating more carbs (talk with a registered dietitian or your doctor before making any major dietary changes), I find that a low-carb diet works best for me and has helped me lose 15 pounds since January. I also like incorporating protein and healthy fats into every snack to keep me satisfied and on track with my weight-loss goals. Whether you're eating a low-carb diet or just want a protein-packed snack to get you through the day, these options will satisfy your rumbly tummy and tastebuds. Bonus: they are all on Amazon!
